Peter Jackson making ‘Beatles’ documentary

January 30, 2019
Out of the many unforgettable albums put out by The Beatles, ‘Let It Be’ is up there with the best. If you’re a fan of the album, you’re in luck because it’s been announced that filmmaker Peter Jackson will be directing a documentary that is comprised footage from their 1969 time in the studio while working on the album. Apple & WingNut Films are producing the project. “The 55 hours of never-before-seen footage and 140 hours of audio made available to us, ensures this movie will be the ultimate ‘fly on the wall’ experience that Beatles fans have long dreamt about – it’s like a time machine transports us back to 1969, and we get to sit in the studio watching these four friends make great music together,” said Jackson. No release date has been revealed. This announcement comes just after the release of Jackson’s ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ - a documentary full of newly colored and remastered footage from World War I with dubbed audio that brings the First World War to the modern times (seriously, check out the trailer for this film if you have not heard of it - absolutely stunning). Fan of The Beatles? In 2016 Ron Howard directed a documentary around the band called ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week’ that was praised by critics & fans alike.
